Raspberries......anyone?


Good Morning Blogger's,

I can play in my craft room tomorrow with a clear conscience after a day working outside yesterday!  The rain that was forecast stayed away which was great for all those people who decided to go away for our NSW long week end!

I have lots of new goodies to play with too. One more release for Heartfelt Creations....  ooh yes I thought last month was the last but I have one more.....what fun!  Then you may have seen Andrea has started to post little peeks of some new sets for AnnaBelle Stamps.......so yummy, I'm having fun with these and can't wait to share.

Today I have a card made with one of Heartfelt Creations older stamps Raspberries. I couldn't resist adding this one to my collection! I've also used one of the new Spellbinder Edgeabilities dies on this card......they are all FABULOUS and I'll be getting lots of use from them over the coming weeks.


I used my Prisma colouring pencils with Gamsol to colour the raspberries, which sit beneath a Spellbinder cut popped up frame. The rows of die cut scallop's use both the positive and negative cut shapes..... no waste!   I've left a cream space at the base of this card ready to stamp a sentiment when needed.....I'll probably add a few raspberry Sprinkles too....yum!  Do you like the dsp it's KaiserCraft Miss Nelly 6.5" paper pad and the cream tape is from Vandoros.......Oh I wish someone here is Australia would carry 1" silk ribbon for card makers........It really is the best!!!!

This little card is my entry for the following challenges:

Inspire me Friday #26 = Anything Goes   (Friday)
4 Crafty Chicks # 57   = Anything Goes   (Thursday)

OK back to by work desk...........
Hope you're enjoying your week end and thanks for taking the time to call by today.......:)

Sue - such a lovely card - raspberries are my favourite fruit of summer. Your colouring is lovely - soft and subtle.

Have a good day - I'm off to bed now :)

These raspberries are gorgeous and match perfectly with your DP! I think I will keep an eye out for those Spellbinder Edgeabilities, such a fab look you've created with them!
